Rudolph Moshammer
Birth: Sep. 27, 1940
Death: Jan. 14, 2005

Businessman. Born in Bavaria, he went from rags to riches when he became a flamboyant fashion designer to the stars. He opened his boutique in Munich's most expensive street, Maximilianstrasse, in 1967 where he offered his extravagant fur, cashmere and silk garments. He built a reputation for the extravagant clothes he designed and wore, and was well known on Germany's celebrity circuit. Among his customers were Austrian-born Arnold Schwarzenegger, now Governor of California, tenor singer Jose Carreras, actor Richard Chamberlain and the Las Vegas-based magicians Siegfried and Roy. Moshammer established a foundation for the benefit of Munich's homeless in response to his experience watching his formerly well-to-do father sink to the depths of alcoholism and then suicide, as well sponsoring an alcohol treament center. A life-long bachelor, he was extremely close to his mother and eventually published a book titled "Mama und ich" ("Mommy and I"). Often heavily made-up and wearing a wig of swept back jet black hair with a small lock hanging to his forehead, he was instantly recognizable alongside his constant companion Daisy, a Yorkshire terrier. (bio by: Fred Beisser)
